Doors and Walls and Decorations Thereon

It can be very difficult getting rid of your children’s artwork.  But kidlet is such a prolific artist – drawings, sculptures, you-name-it – and she has been since she was very small.  So when we moved there simply wasn’t room for it all.  (There wasn’t room in the old place either, but I just couldn’t throw any of it away.)  So we took the opportunity to go through everything,  we sat together and chose a few special pieces to keep.  Well, OK, more than a few.  But fewer.

But that doesn’t mean she has stopped producing more!  Her newest works, however, have already found good places.

Last month, she decided to be practical and made a new sign for the front door.

(Here the T- family lives in style)

It wasn’t quite the text I would have chosen, but hey, why not.

This weekend she brought a sign for the inside entrance, with a blessing for the home.

(In the shape of the hamsa, for good luck.)   It’s going up this week.

We’re still discussing where her artwork should be best displayed.  I do have a certain shelf in mind, if I can figure a way to keep the cat away from it.  And some will be hung in her room.

Any other ideas?  Where do you keep your kids’ art?
